Omega 3 And Skin Archives

There’s a new premium Omega 3 supplement available on first release. Not only does it have implications for your better health, but also for your skin.

Super omega 3. Ever heard of it? From time to time you may see references to super Omega 3. Some Omega 3 products call themselves “super”. However it’s not that easy to know exactly what super Omega 3 is.

It would seem reasonable to assume that anything that is supposed to be “super” Omega 3 has to be better than regular Omega 3 capsules.

If that’s the case then the Omega3 capsules from Xtend Life, having up to 2 1/2 times more active ingredient (DHA) than “regular” Omega 3 capsules certainly qualify. However Xtend Life have now introduced a new premium Omega3 capsule that is even better than their regular Omega 3 supplements.

Have a look at the new premium Omega3 capsules from Xtend Life (to find out more see our banner on the right) and see why they are even better than their regular fish oil supplements, which until now have been the best on the market anyway.

Just about all women, as they age, are interested in anti aging skin care. Keeping yourself, and your skin, looking great right into old age is the goal of millions of American women, for good reason. Good looking skin is healthy skin.Premium Omega 3

And taking regular Omega 3 supplements is not only good for your general health but is also very good for your skin. The oils in Omega 3 supplements are very similar to the natural oils produced by your skin itself and keeping your skin hydrated and better moisturized by taking Omega 3 fatty acids is an important part of an overall skin care routine and is also very important to your general health as well.

(If you’re interested in the general health benefits of Omega 3 then there’s plenty of information here about those, just read some of the articles under the categories on the right.)

However Xtend Life has decided to increase the effectiveness of their Omega 3 supplements even more. Modern research is now uncovering a range of naturally occurring ingredients which have substantial benefits to the skin. An example of this is lycopene. You may have heard of lycopene before. It comes from tomatoes and cutting edge science is starting to discover that lycopene has a range of health giving properties. For example there is now evidence that increasing the intake of lycopene can help prevent prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women.

However it has also been found that lycopene has significant benefits to your skin. For a start it acts as a natural sunscreen, increasing your skin’s resistance to the effects of the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight.

This helps prevent the incidence of what is known as photo-aging. Photo-aging is the technical name for the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation on your skin over time. The more you are exposed to UV radiation and in particular to sunburn the more damage is done to your skin, over time.

Science is now starting to discover that lycopene can help reverse some of the damaging effects of UV radiation on the skin, and can therefore reverse the effects of photo-aging.

Another ingredient in the new premium capsules containing omega3 as well as lycopene, is Astaxanthin. This is an antioxidant and you may have heard of it in relation to krill oil, as it is found in krill oil. Astaxanthin, according to the studies, has a wide range of health benefits, and in particular it also acts as a natural sunscreen and helps reverse the effects of photo-aging on your skin as well.

Xtend Life have now released their premium capsules containing Omega 3 essential fatty acids, again at about 2 1/2 times the concentration of DHA found in regular Omega 3 capsules, but which also contain lycopene and Astaxanthin. All of these ingredients have a wide range of health benefits but in particular all 3 have specific benefits to the health of your skin and help reduce the effects of sun damage on your skin, the most damaging cause of premature skin aging.

There are obvious reasons why women interested in the best anti aging skin care should be taking the premium Omega3 capsules rather than the regular capsules. But there are also a wide range of other health benefits which science is showing can also be obtained from increasing the amount of lycopene and Astaxanthin in the diet, including, for women, a reduction in the risk of breast cancer.

Modern science is doing an extremely effective job at isolating important substances naturally found in such sources as plants and establishing if they have any health benefits for us, and if so what they are. Lycopene, found in tomatoes, is a fine example.

And the best modern anti aging skin care companies are finding ways to incorporate these natural ingredients in a range of products offering us benefits for our health and for our skin.

It seems that Omega 3 fats are good for all sorts of things. Fish oil and skin health go together too.

Lately we’ve talked about all sorts of serious health concerns that can be improved by increasing your intake of Omega 3 fish oil. Skin is no exception.

Whilst skin conditions and skin health aren’t a life threatening issue, there are probably as many people interested in keeping their skin looking good as there are about any other health issue. Skin care is big business and skin aging, and skin conditions like wrinkles, lines around the mouth and eyes and skin sagging are serious concerns to so many, particularly women.

Skin is just like the rest of our body. It needs good polyunsaturated fats just like our heart does, and it responds to an increase in good fats and a decrease in bad fats in our diet by getting more and more healthy and looking better.

Most people who start taking fish oil supplements do so for reasons unconnected to skin health. However there is a tendency for many people who start taking fish oil supplements to report an improvement in specific skin conditions that they might have, as well as an improvement in the look and feel of their skin too.

And it’s not only skin. Whilst it’s clear that fish oil for good skin does indeed work, fish oil is also good for your nails and hair. Users of high quality fish oil supplements routinely report improvements in nails and hair.Fish Oil Skin

So why take fish oil for skin health? What does Omega 3 do for skin?

The skin has it’s own natural oils. It produces them itself, but can often suffer from a lack of oils. They can be stripped out by, for example, too much sun or wind or other factors. So people use moisturizers to retain skin moisture and reduce oil loss.

Omega 3 fats are similar to the skins natural oils and help the skin produce more.

Not only that but Omega 3 is also an excellent anti inflammatory. Many skin conditions are characterized by inflammation and so anything that helps reduce this is good for the skin. Fish oil has been shown to be an even more effective anti inflammatory than aspirin, and has no serious health side effects. Reducing skin inflammation is an excellent way to improve skin health and reduce specific skin problems.

Many skin experts are now prescribing a dose of fish oil for skin health each day. Of course that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t also be using quality skin care products, you should be doing both.

There’s excellent health reasons to be taking Omega 3 supplements for general health and everyone should now be doing so. Whilst skin health is important the health and heart benefits of daily Omega 3 supplements are vital, and reason enough to be adding a serious dose of fish oil to your daily diet.

But if your skin, and your nails and your hair are also going to benefit then there’s just more reasons to get healthier and feel better, and look better.

Remember your fish oil. Skin loves it and your whole body loves it. Take quality fish oil for good skin health and overall health.
